The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield has revealed that he doesn’t think his version of Peter Parker likes Tony Stark / Iron Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the reason has to do with wealth.
In a video with GQ, Garfield answered a question about how Iron Man would treat his Spider-Man on Quora. Garfield replied: “I definitely think Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man would be quite suspicious of MCU Iron Man. I think he would be a bit disgusted by Ironman’s excess, billionaire and trillionaire status. [sic]. I think it would affect my version of Spider-Man badly. But maybe there may be some influence there. Maybe my Peter Parker could wake up Tony Stark a little to his own egoic impulses. We will never know. We will literally never know. “
As Garfield points out at the end of the video, it is incredibly unlikely that his version of Spider-Man will ever interact with Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. made his debut as Tony Stark in 2008.

Right now, there are rumors that Garfield will reprise his role as Peter in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is scheduled to premiere on December 17. That movie will feature the return of Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain Max Dillon / Electro (Jamie Foxx) as one of several bad guys from across the multiverse and franchises seeking revenge on Peter. However, Garfield has repeatedly denied his rumored role in No way home. Still, such denials are common when it comes to high-profile cameos in MCU movies.
